correspondent mike emanuel standing by on capitol hill with the latest from that end of pennsylvania avenue. mike? >> good evening. coming out o a big white house meeting everybody agrees that the next step should be the senate taking the bipartisan action. so the pressure shifts to senate majority leader harry reid. and what he may be able to strike to get at least some republican support. >> house republicans voted pass the tax cut and automatic cut to defense and domestic program starting in the new year. so they shifted the focus for the need for majority leader harry reid and the senate democrats to do something. >> the way the senate is fon functionm right now, not even bringing the bills upper committee is frustrating to those of us in the house that are doing the work that has to be done. if senate wants to resolution, the senate has to actually pass something on this. we have done our work. senate has to respond. >> challenge is determining what passed the republican-led house and democrat-controlled senate. fiscal conservatives say a smaller stop gap measure to avoid the cliff won
in this fiscal cliff standoff. we have team fox coverage. mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. but first to ed henry at the white house. ed, it looks as if we are taking the plunge. >> it does, trace. but what i think the white house is hoping here tonight is that lawmakers are going to have some framework by midnight tonight that basically says votes as soon as tomorrow or maybe even in early wee hours, 1:00 a.m., 2:00 a.m. to start moving forward on this so at least the markets get the signal that they will retroactively make sure that the tax rates don't go up. that the massive spending cuts don't take effect. all of this is still hanging in the balance. as you mentioned, conservatives not happy that there are no new spending cuts here. liberals not happy over the fact that they believe the president gave in too much to republicans on taxes setting a threshold of $450,000 a year instead of what they wanted which was 250,000. bottom line the president said that's the art of the compromise today. everyone is not going to get everything that they want. and, in fact, he said the key here is to
spokesperson says his condition has improved and he has been moved from intensive care. mike is standing by live at the hospital. >> reporter: a bit of welcome news as the former president is ending his time in the intensive care unit. that his condition continues to improve. a lost reason for optimism. he spent shy of a week in the intensive care it was described as a stubborn fever he had a difficult time shaking. nasty case of bronchitis that had the president hospitalized since the end of november. the spokespeople working with bush people have been optimistic throughout this process and his condition improves, all the way while taking the fact that he is an 88-year-old man sick. and noting the fact he is laughing and joking with the staff. even pointing out that yesterday at one point he was sing weigh the hospital staff. you know he got a pick me up from the oakridge boys fan and they sang a song to him. doctors feeling that his condition are so fragile they need to monitor him in the intensive care. >> gregg: it's a good sign when you are singing to the nurses. mike, thanks. >> gr
reorganized the federal government. >> yeah. nancy and mike have written a terrific book from beginning to end. but i found that to be the most compelling and newest material. i didn't know it. i knew hoover had lived forever with -- downstairs from mrs. douglas macarthur in the waldorf and had his vision of that without much else. and it's -- i think one of the general principles it goes to is, you know, if you're the president of the united states, by and large you get your phone calls returned. and if you're there, you have any resource you want to presumably, at least -- you make a case to somebody to have them do something. and i think the greatest presidents have been ones who have done two things, one is they've loved the job and they've loved the politics of it, which doris can tell us more about johnson and that than anybody, but also people who have felt that the sands are running through the hourglass all the time and they want to mobilize any resource they can find to accomplish what they want to accomplish. and i think what mike and nancy had done is they've shown how presidents h
-by-minute. mike emanuel kicks off our fox team coverage live from washington. harry reid said negotiations continue. where do we stand? >> senator reid seemed to be looking ahead to tomorrow's schedule. talks continue but a deal is not implement. another said there's a chance one could be reached tonight. harry reid and mitch mcconnell are the key players. he sounded frustrated after not receiving a counter-offer. a key member of the leadership team offered this update. >> offeringses and discussions between and we remain hopeful that will get a breakthrough. obviously what happened here between the two leaders in the senate had broken down because the senate democrats failed to come forward with a counter offer to the proposal the republicans made last night. hopefully the discussions between the.and senator mcconnell will get us on track. >> republican aides recognize the consequences if it falls apart. everybody gets a tax increase in 48 hours. >> well, it's less than 48 hours now. i'm wonder, are the democrats fighting among themself? >> there's a battle over social security. republica
and at the white house. we start with mike, live on capitol hill. what's the latest on republicans? and how are they reacting to the comments we heard from the president? >> reporter: good afternoon. the critical comments from president obama in a critical stage in these negotiations, certainly seem to hit a nerve. a spokesman for senator mitch mcconnell says while the president was tapingly those remark, senator mcconnell was trying to bring republicans and democrats together on a solution. the spokesman notes, discussions continue. if senator mcconnell and harry reid can reach a deal in the next couple of hours, leading senate republican notes there is no guarantee it will pass both the house and the senate. >> if mcconnell can't get 60% of us to vote for this deal, it will be hard for boehner to get it through the house. i want to vote for it even though i won't like it because the country has a lot at stake. >> among the republican krengs any revenue generated by a potential deal, they would like to see it come do paying down the deficit, not new government spending. shannon? >> how con

responsible for this meeting. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. what where republican leaders saying about today's meeting? reporter: republicans in office do not control the white house. they need to cooperate and to actually support a final plan in the senate. so they are pushing to see what the president will offer at this meeting. a leading senate republican sounded pretty skeptical about this meeting. >> anytime you nonsedating public publicly in washington, it is usually for political theater purposes. my bet is that it's all political theater. jon: republicans have made the point that it is time for the senate to act. they are also anxious to see what the president has to offer. obviously, we are waiting to see whether there will be enough republican support for whatever is offered to get us a bill through the house and senate. harris: what is happening on the democratic side? reporter: they are frustrated. they wanted that house republicans to return a lot sooner to work on a fiscal cliff deal. we know that it will not return until sunday, the
in and we all feel the pain. mike emanuel live with the news for us tonight on capitol hill. top democrats seem to be suggesting they cannot cut a deal without republican help. >> well, harris, that is right. and so they are asking what it will take to at least get some republican support. they say time is so critical. they cannot just roll out new legislation only to have the republicans reject it. we know president obama called the top four congressional leaders last night on his way back from hawaii. tomorrow afternoon at the white house will be a meeting between the president and those top four congressional leaders and earlier the top senate democrat expressed concern or frustration saying you cannot legislate with yourself. >> the republicans in the house have left town. the negotiations between the president and the speaker have fallen apart as they have for the last three and a half years. we have tried mightily to get something done. >> now, perhaps in an effort to address that we know late today senator reid who you heard from there went to meet with his counter part senator mcc
overwhelmingly, mike ducacas was beaten pretty soundly. after all those things happened, the democratic party through bill clinton and others like him trying to change it, made the party more acceptable to the american people. republicans have not gotten there yet. it was a party as we saw in the election, a declining -- white share of the vote is the declining share of the electorate. their share is going up, but not enough to compensate. >> right. >> right now the sort of primal scream you hear for spending cuts isn't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts elected in the house simply have not adapted to that reality. >> let me go to jonathan chait and the primal scream and the election president obama won, but you wouldn't know this in washington. doesn't it feel sometimes like one side experienced maybe a different election? >> they did. for the house republicans,
. it's thursday, december 27th. i'm mike barnicle in for joe, mika and willie. joining the table, we have political editor and white house correspondent for the huffington post, sam stein. >> hi. >> applause for sam. "fortune's" assistant managing editor, leigh gallagher. and the president of the council on foreign relations, author of "foreign policy begins at home: the case for putting america's house in order." and in washington, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and msnbc political analyst, richard wolffe. a minor round of applause for richard wolffe. >> one hand clapping. >> first of all, can anybody here come up with a synonym -- i don't care what it is -- so we don't have to employ the phrase "fiscal cliff" at all during the day? any ideas? anybody got any -- >> how about deadline? >> how about do your job. how about just do your job time. it is ridiculous. a little news, then we'll chatter about this. as if tax hikes and spending cuts weren't enough, there's a new reminder that the nation's debt ceiling is also hanging over the budget talks in washington. in a
about those that were killed. >> fireman mike chiporinni with the police department was deceased at the scene. scardino is in surgery, he's a fireman. and joseph happs is also a volunteer firefighter and a full time firefighter with the rochester fire department was also injured and is being treated at the scene. my lieutenant was a lifetime firefighter, i think he started out as an explorer, 20-year veteran of the police departm t department, lieutenant mik mike chiporinni. i know tomas was a younger individual, worked, again, for public service in the forefront, worked for 911, just by all accounts just a tremendous young man. these people get up in the middle of the night to put out fires they don't expect to be shot and killed. >> absolutely not. they don't expect to be shot at when they're coming to help put out flames and save lives. i want to show a picture to our viewers that we just got in of lieutenant mike chiporinni, one of the two officers that was killed. we don't have it for you. we'll get it to you next hour, for sure. the two that were injured are in the hospita
, that one is a real significant. in most dangerous flight -- mike had to recover from a tail stall. this was a glide like, not a space flight. by the way, the guy on the left, he is now the ceo of scaled. you can see that the discussion -- we are really getting good data back and forth here. i mean, he is just about out of the space ship. and things that were said there are probably the most important things, more important than the final record of the flight. when i write my memoirs, which i think i will just published on my website, i will tell you what i am telling the faa administrator over in the corridor here. faa was the one that regulates these test flights. that is an interesting story. i have to go back a few years for a. seek out the experience and learn for them. peering into the rocket nozzle of spaceshipone -- one of the rocket scientists came over with von braun in 1946. he died just this last year. i tried to involve these guys. max does not have an engineering degree, but he is the one who designed the shape of the mercury capsule. you know, that dome on the bottom
, the price in american lives and dollars, and i don't think so. >> last call comes from mike in syracuse, new york. >> caller: thank you for taking my call. my question is, what do
from mike -- go to mike from the independent line. caller: i would like to say that this fiscal cliff is a charade. it is promoted by the media. it has nothing to do with fixing our economy. the president has had an opportunity to go to the g-7 or the 20 and explain that western civilization is in debt so far that it is never going to get out of it unless we abandon these world trade rules, everybody go home to their own country, and do with the need to do to get back on the even keel with their financing. host: are using the u.s. should pull back from its international commitments and focus more on -- more on home? caller: i would suggest that other western countries do the same thing. the president should have his staff identify the most labour intensive products that we purchased here in the u.s. and stop importing them. he should say, for example, the automotive parts and automobiles -- six months from now, he should say, we're not going to allow any imports. the creek investors -- greedy investors will go to work and start making plans and getting plants to fill that void. by tha
demateo. the man who helped restore the photos mike dilemte. this is a fantastic story. everyone always fears whether it's a storm like sandy or house fire losing the things that you can't rebuild like photos, like memories. how devastating was it to think we may have lost these incredible pictures? >> it was very devastating. i said what is there? but thank god, you know, we were all together. we survived. s that was my main concern at that point. then later on everything started to settle in. and i started realizing what i had lost. that's it. y go anywhere beyond that. >> did you think there was any hope. >> no i did the no. besides the water there was a lot of storage. they were all destroyed. we will make new memories. but thanks to mike, we got some of our memories back. sean sweeney to hold him the story. she showed you that these photos had been essentially to most of us would think he they're testifies stated why this d. this spark to you action and do it free of charge out of goods in of your heart. god mass blessed me unbelievablably. i have a great family. i have incredible
. thanks to mike who did so much to organize the event. he is an old friend. thank you, mike. i'm delighted to be here today with corbin. -- david corbin. we have two books that talk about robert byrd from different perspectives. my book is basically about the senate and the last great senate as i refer to it. senator byrd was the majority leader during the period of time i wrote about. it gives you an ensemble sense of how the senate works. the book originated in 2008. i had been in the senate in the 1970s and 1980s. by 2008, i decided the senate had become utterly unrecognizable to me. polarized and paralyzed, really quite dysfunctional. i decided to write a book about the senate when it was great, specifically when i was there. [laughter] when you do something like that, you have a certain risk factor. was it really great? was it only seem great because i was there or because i was young? fortunately, the answer turned out to be, no. i discovered something that was there in plain sight, but had not been noticed. if you googled the words "great senate" you'll find nothing other than my bo
bring us to what our mike viqueira calls the inertia scenario where they decide the best thing is to go over the fiscal cliff. the democrats for some of them from their perspective it is not a bad thing because they think they have the upper hand in public opinion and also that it basically assures the elimination of bush tax cuts. on the republican side it does the same thing but then they can say, i didn't vote for a tax cut. un, they just expired. is there -- are there enough people there who really are willing to hold firm and let us go over the cliff? >> yes. i think clearly there are. one sign that people are trying to prepare the way for americans not to take it so seriously, after months of talking about the catastrophic consequences of going over the fiscal cliff, you see people now at the white house, on the hill, in both parties talking about it as a slope, not a cliff. that there will be a deal early in the new year if not one by new year's eve. so i think clearly both sides think it is now likely that we'll go over the cliff and that they want to argue it's not so catastrop
correspondent mike emanuel is live on capitol hill where it probably feels like groundhog day to him too. what haw hearing, any progress on the fiscal cliff thing? >> we are all watching and waiting to hear as the senate goes back into session any moment now. everybody i've talked to in recent hours says there are signs of progress, there's optimism, but as one key republican senator told me a few minutes ago, it will come down to those pesky details. vice president joe biden and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell the republican leader have been the key figures in these negotiations after talks stalled over the weekend between mcconnell and senate majority leader harry reid. mcconnell says he and the vice president spoke last night at 12:45, again at 6:30 this morning. mcconnell explained why he reached out to his former senate colleague mr. biden. >> i also placed a call to the vice president to see if he could help jump start the negotiations on his side. the vice president and i have worked together on solutions before, and i believe we can again. >> obviously we were watching to see wh
. it is at supersonic for reentry. the reason it does is that mike adams got killed while i was working at edwards during reentry. he did not have the hitch accurate within about that much -- pitch accurate within about that much range and he did not have the yaw accurate within about that much rain, and that haunted me. i thought that was the reason we would not have commercial space flight. the pilot for spaceshipone reentry -- by the way, there is not autopilot. the only thing controlling those controls are the rudder pedals on a mock 0.3 airplane. you have the electric fin on the tail. just like a piper cub. [laughter] weird, huh? you could be at apogee in spaceshipone, eat your lunch, handoff, and do as a free entry -- safe reentry. you're not putting yourself at risk like mike adams put himself at risk. this is just a picture isgoogle earth. out to the right is the white knight climbing 50% more altitude than an airliner. going up about 50,000 feet. from up there, about 70 miles, you're looking on the horizon. this is why we stopped flying space ships. i wanted to fly one every five months t
tonight. and we have michael lynn on the to thank for that. mike sl co-chair politics aside 2012 just like 2010 and he of course is a ran strust tee so we're delighted to have him. he'll moderate tonight. and with him and i'll ask the panel to come forward. howard gor dan and michael sheen. >> figs of all, thank you for being here this evening and thank you for being here on a friday night. i don't do this for a live sog you're going to have to fill in in the middle. let's start off shes we all know the wonderful shows and movies you've been involved with, many of which have overlapped with politics from "homeland," "the queen", so the first thing i'd like to ask -- i'd like to talk about the shows "homeland" and "the queen." where did those come from in the first place? >> "24" came from a basic idea, two writers. joel said it was an in the shower idea. i'm thinking about television and in television there are 22 or 24 episodes in a season, thinking about the number 24 and said could you do an entire series of television over the course of one day. and i was an executive at fox at the tim
in colorado. one of the sea changes we've seen in the wake of this shooting is senators like joe manchin, mike warner, saying i've changed my mind, joe manchin saying, i've never hunted with more than three shells in a clip. why isn't this a conversation we can be having more broadly? and getting republican senators on board? >> i would also point you to the democratic governor of colorado in the wake of the aurora shootings also said, i'm not sure if an assault weapons ban would have stopped james woolsly in this mass certificate in colorado. an assault weapons ban wouldn't have stopped him. it's not just a republican or democratic issue. in 1994, the democrats took a huge political walloping -- do you like that word? for instituting the assault weapons ban, and the house of representative s went back to republicans for the first time in four years -- >> i'm not sure that's why they took a whooping. >> here's why we have had a frank conversation. any time you talk about guns or gun violence in this country, it goes to, if we do this, it would not have prevented this certain act. the issue is
on gun control with the organization's former political director, richard feldman. >>> senator mike crepo of idaho apologizing to constituestit co family after being arrested early saturday morning for driving under the influence. he failed a field sobriety test. he was pulled over after spotted running a red light and had a blood alcohol level of poin 11. the legal blood alcohol level is point 08. he was released on $1,000 bond. >>> a senior navy s.e.a.l. commander's death is being investigated as a suicide. navy commander john price's body was found after he didn't show up at an appointed time. he was serving as part of the special commanding unit s.e.a.l. team 4. he was not related in any investigation or controversies. >>> a north korean rocket had the ability to travel 6,000 miles, conceivably one could reach the u.s. this is based in part on a part they recovered from one of the rocket's boosters. south korea says it shows north korea's intent and progress. >>> how badly did mitt romney want to be president? not badly. tag romney telling "the boston globe," if his father could have
from mike out in florida. caller: good morning. i am a bit pessimistic. i believe that on c-span they had an economist on here explaining how americans do not understand the difference between millions, billions, in trillions. with the trillions of dollars in debt, he put it into the context of time. 1 million seconds will take 11 days to pass. 1 billion seconds will pass in 32 years. when trillion seconds will pass in 32,000 years. i think it is almost impossible to see how we will ever pay off this debt. that is all i have to say. host: that was mike from florida. plenty more time for your calls, facebook postings, and it tweets.- tonight on prime time we're going to sit down with a couple of retiring members of congress. dan burton and kent conrad. a little snippet from each interview. we will show you now congressman burton. [video clip] >> i would like for people to think, he might have been a bulldog, but he was a man who believed in honesty and integrity of things that were right for this country. regardless of how difficult it was, he kept to those principles. i hope
it does is that mike adams got killed while i was working at edwards during reentry. he did not have the pitch accurate within about that much range and he did not have the yaw accurate within about that much rain, and that haunted me. i thought that was the reason we would not have commercial space flight. the pilot for spaceshipone reentry -- by the way, there is not autopilot. the only thing controlling those controls are the rudder pedals on a mock 0.3 airplane. you have the electric fin on the tail. just like a piper cub.

a wonderful christmas they spent together. mike thompson, a congressman from california, he's a democrat, he's the congressman who has the -- whose clinic for post traumatic stress syndrome, john hammer was a patient in. he served in iraq, in afghanistan, in a fierce fire fight in fallujah. and this rifle he was taking into mexico, he went to u.s. custom border patrol and registered it with them, they waited, they photographed it. they told him, sure, you can bring it into mexico. just register it. and it was when john was registering the firearm, he was arrested for his trouble, and he had been there since august, chained to his bed. a nightmare scenario, so the bipartisan group of legislators were able to get together to bring john hamer home, maybe we can fix the fiscal cliff problem. here is what we can. >> here is what john hammer's mom had to say about the homecoming, which was really a christmas gift to them. take a listen. >> it was like my first night that i slept all night long without getting up, and it was just the thought of not wondering what's going on with him, can anyone hur
year with no deal, our next guest says it might not matter who gets the upper hand at all. mike, happy new year. good to see you again. >> same to you. >> you're talking about a ten year time horizon even with all the drama that we're witnessing todaynd at uncertainty among investor, you say long term, i think you use the words virtually guarantees the focus on the ten year guarantees longer run sustainability will not be attained despite this battle. >> that's right. if you look at the long run projections, the problems really intensify after 2025 when the baby boom retirement interacts with rising health care costs. 2013 to 2022 basically misses when we really start to see sustainability issues get much worse. so i do think that the focus on the ten year horizon kind of guarantees that whatever solution we'll get doesn't address those longer term issues. >> i guess a lot of people would agree with you. is there any chance though that somehow congress finds some discipline deep down and surprises us all? is that even possible? >> well, one can always hope, but it certainly sounds like
. [ stand by audio difficulty ] >> she is right across the room. got to get the mike to work. we'll go meantime to john harwood. the president, i think it is a package here, talking about the hopes of avoiding the fiscal cliff but what is on the agenda after the first of the year. john harwood takes a look at some of the predictions for the white house in 2013. >> president obama's re-election campaign was long on effective arguments but short on details of exactly what he will do after his second-term inaugural parade takes place on pennsylvania avenue. suddenly, three big priorities have come into focus. tax reform, immigration, and gun control. tax reform is driven by the fiscal cliff debate. it is the only way to maximize revenue while minimizing tax rate increases. but this white house has always been skeptical tax reform could become a reality given support for popular loopholes so count this obama goal unlikely to happen. comprehensive immigration reform took a back seat in president obama's first term. but after hispanic voters helped him win a second one, he can't avoid it now

a fiscal of deal, we want to look at other items this morning. this is from "the new york times." mike on the line for independents. your thoughts on that the senate negotiating the fiscal clift deal? caller: i would like to take a step back. this is a discussion on philosophies. i think the basic difference in philosophy between two parties. i think the solution really is to come up with an agreement that will make everybody equally unhappy and explain that this is for the benefit of all of our children. host: what would be an agreement that would make everybody unhappy? caller: if you told republicans there would be means testing and they are not going to get some of the benefits like medicare or social security because they have wealth in their lives, it would make them happy, but they could afford it. if you told democrats that we are going to cut some benefits to try to get the deficit under control -- if this other republicans are also taking cuts, maybe they would go along with the things. i think there are a lot of people in the system that the benefits that they do not need. h
